About Precious Life Animal Sanctuary
Precious Life Animal Sanctuary was founded in September 1999 by Ralph & Caryl Turner. The founders have been
actively involved in local, state and national animal protection issues their entire adult lives. For a number
of years, they have rescued Great Pyrenees dogs from New Mexico, a puppy mill in Kansas, and local western Washington
humane societies. They have also rescued and provided care for large numbers of spayed and neutered feral cats.
A couple of significant rescues started them on the path to rescuing farm animals. One involved a three-week old
dairy calf from the local state fair petting zoo that was headed for the auction and certain slaughter and
the other was a downer calf that was to be slaughtered at a local meat processing plant.
Witnessing such suffering and misery, they felt it was imperative to establish a sanctuary to give back to all the
animals who had touched their lives and provided so much happiness and inspiration throughout the years.
Precious Life Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit organziation dedicated to rescuing and
providing a safe home for abused, neglected and abandoned farm and companion animals,
teaching humane education and advocating against practices
that perpetuate animal suffering.
